We currently have exciting opportunities available for Support Workers to join our Supported Living Services based in Clifton, Bedfordshire. We provide support to 7 individuals with learning disabilities, who all live onsite in their own flats.  We support them to go out on the bus, go shopping, and attend activities such as sailing, bowling, night clubs, swimming and many more. Some of the people we support also access our Resource Centre located in Shefford.


About the role

As a Support Worker at Hft you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible.  In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people’s needs and always looking for the best way of doing things.


This is a full-time role, working 37.5 hours per week. Shifts are on a 7.5 hour basis and include a combination of early starts from 7/7:30am - 14:30/15:00 and later shifts starting from either 2/3pm - 21:30/2200. The role includes working every other weekend on a rota basis.


About you

You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job - you’ll get plenty of training along the way. It’s great if you already have experience of learning disabilities, autism or dementia, but this is by no means essential. What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible.


What we offer

We offer a range of benefits and career development opportunities. We’ll give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation we are committed to investing in our teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible.


Join us and help us change lives.
